Apart from noisy neighbours at stupid o'clock, there is not one fault I can comment on. Position, fantastic - room, clean and well appointed with good view (facing sea not Estuary)- restaurant second to none, excellent quality and variety for price. Luxurious bar / lounge / dining, fantastic experience.

Such a joy that one can stay in such a magnificent place. The views are extraordinary and looking out over the cathedral is very, very special.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Viana do Castelo, Santa Luzia, built in 1918, is fruit of the remodelling of the old Santa Luzia Hotel, maintaining the impressive characteristics which set it apart with the high majestic granite walls and the wide archways. A few hundred metres from the city stands the Mount Santa Luzia, dominating the metropolis and the Lima estuary up to the Atlantic, where our eyes are fed by the luxurious panorama. There lies the Pousada de Viana do Castelo, offering its guests from the moment they arrive, a magnificent view of the city which according to history has been occupied since the remote Mesolithic times; testimonies state numerous archaeological findings from the pre-Roman citadel. Viana do Castelo offers a superb panoramic view. It's a tourist city for its excellence, where perfect harmony of progress and wealth meet, a true living museum of ethnography and folklore. The heritage of Minho has a unique richness, with striking landscapes, churches, convents and beautiful palaces. The feast in honour of Our Lady of Agony, which runs from the 17th through to the 20th of August, stands out as the most colourful of Portugal. Classic and refined, the Pousada de Viana do Castelo exalts luxury in every detail and depth, which will surely make a memorable experience. ... more   less
